Municipal Consulting

Places Associates, Inc. offers continuing or one-time services directly to town Boards and Departments. Services have ranged from acting town Engineer to contractual municipal consulting, to providing reviews of individual reports and plans. We have reviewed a range of projects including of subdivisions; residential, commercial and industrial site plans; Comprehensive permit (40B) housing and common driveways for compliance with the regulations and with sound engineering practices. We have provided construction inspections of roadways, review of bond releases and road acceptances and review of existing drainage issues under litigation for various towns.

All members of our professional staff have served or currently serve on local, municipal volunteer boards including: Board of Selectmen, Planning Boards, Conservation Commissions, Capital Planning, Affordable Housing, By-law review Committees and others.

We believe that our staff’s involvement with their hometown boards gives us the unique perspective of understanding the issues and concerns of volunteer board members as we help the Boards to evaluate projects before them. We have also worked with Boards on updates and implementation of changing technologies in their regulations and zoning by providing language clarification, specifications and a working knowledge of the changes happening in other municipalities.
